Application of Static Grounding System in Food & Beverage
The handling and storage of flammable organic ingredients such as flour or sugar and flammable products such as ethanol can generate dangerously high levels of static electricity. Safety in the food and beverage industry also needs to be taken seriously, and an effective way is to use certified Static Grounding System to reduce the risk of fire and explosion.
1. Grounding Assemblies
Ex II 2 G T6
2. Self-testing Grounding Clamp with Visible & Audible Alarms
The accumulation of static charges during the fueling transfer process can lead to costly explosions, fire and personnel injury. The ‘Self-testing Grounding Clamp’ with visible & audible alarms is designed to dissipate static accumulation and verify proper grounding. It is intrinsically safe for use in hazardous locations.
The ATEX approved "Static Grounding Reels" have a selfretracting cable drum and an instant locking mechanism to prevent the cable from becoming tangled.
The standard S-RL model includes a 7m (23ft.) polyurethane jacketed stainless steel cable. An ATEX approved, heavy duty grounding clamp (with replaceable stainless steel tips) is connected to the cable for a solid connection to the grounding surface. S-RL Reels are also available with 15m (49ft.) and 20m (65ft.) cable lengths.
